Hola!
I'm not smoking pot but i still enjoy it! :)
So i'll try to grow some for my dudes.
As this is my first grow, im not a pro at all, so all the help and tips are appreciated.
Im growing 2 "white widdow" bagseeds and 3 "the church" feminised seeds.

This is the place where i started everything. :)

4 x 24w CFL's (1200 lumens each) and reflector - i made it from cheap soviet oven frying-pan.

This is how i got humidity arount 70%.

So, there are my babies. Large ones are white widdow and small ones the church.

Closer look at ww.

So... I had to move them to larger place... Closet is 4.4 x 2.2 x 6,8 ft.

I used polythene...

Then i used thin foam with folium for walls and ceiling. And some foam un the floor.

There is 400w HPS (55,000 lumens). Not sure if it's enough for 5 plants... ??!!

200 cfm fan was too loud for my apartment so i had to insulate it. Used some foam and stone wool. It works just PERFECT! Only sound from the movement of the air left...

Used some rubber to get rid of the vibration. For odour i bought 4x12 activated carbon filter. Dont know how it works yet... Soon...

This is part of my climate contol. With this device i controll the speed of fans. When temperature is 85 it runs at max speed but in the dark period its running very slowly.

Fan and filter are on 2nd floor, everything else on the 1st floor...

So, plants are in their final house now! How far from my plants should be 400w HPS?

Humifider - boought it on ebay for 20$... Works well enough...

Im feeding them wit BIOCANNA nutrients. Bought them in amsterdam. maybe you know something more about the? The guy in growshop sait that they are very good and i will be able to grow without PH adjusting...

Humidity is around 50% all the time.
Temperature - 75° - 80° when the lights are on. 65° - 75° when the lights are off.

Any ideas about the spots?

PEACE!

Looks like the begining of a pH imbalance to me. Looks like my recent probelm's begining.

The guy in growshop said that with these nutrients I can grow without pH adjusting. So i even havent studied this part of the growing process. Ehat should I do?

Thanks...

One of platns has only brighter spots on leafs. Looks a bit weird.
But second one has some brown. Looking terrible... (only bottom leafs)

On the package of soil it says:
NH4+NO3 = 150 mg/l
P2O5 = 270 mg/l
K2O = 300 mg/l

I used nutrients only for last two waterings...
1 Litre of water:
2 ml BioVega
2 ml BioRhizotonic

Take a look guys!

To far away, bring it down to at least 12 inches and IMO i'd get another light in there! for best results.

Your WW looks like nitrogen lockout because of salt build up, the spots looks like it could be a PH imbalance flash her.

But if i'll bring the light down, temperature at the top of the plants will be more than 80°!

I cant find pH meter in local stores. And what do yo mean by - flash her?!

Thanks!
